Prediction 8-8 (+/- 8)
Major concerns: Defense. Coyle got 3 of the first 4 picks in the Dolphins Draft, he got Brent Grimes in FA and fielded a defense that was confused and overmatched on the field. If his players didn't overwhelm the competition through talent, Miami usually lost the game. Although Coyle didn't get much help from the offense, his defense didn't keep many leads safe either. Overall, I can't believe the kept this guy. He must have naked pictures of Ross.
Reason for optimism - Ryan Tannehill...despite being sacked on a regular basis and having to deal with pressure on every down...he progressed. You'd like to see what he can do with an OL that keeps him upright for more than 3 seconds.
Overall: My Fall Sundays just got free'd up from being tied to the TV. I'll use NFL replay again to watch the games and study them but no way am I forking out hard earned cash for DTV or will I waste time buying plane tix to watch them live. I spend more quality time with the Fam.
Here's hoping they shock me because in year's past I had a sense of what they should do. I fully expect them to crap the bed next season. 4-12 as the team quit on Philbin late in December. As someone stated above...that is very concerning. You can't beat two inferior opponents, 1 at home, and you let two QBs who will be out of the league in a couple of years put up 20 points on your defense.
I was a few games off on Philbin...
